  • Judge will no longer perform marriages

     

    Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers is one of many judge-executives in Kentucky who has ceased to officiate any weddings after a recent U.S. Supreme Court case that made recognition of same-sex marriage the law across the country.

    "I've quit doing ceremonies. I'm not doing any ceremonies," Rogers said. "I respect everybody's beliefs, and whatever they want to do in their lives ... I want to treat everybody fairly."

  • Fire chief wants to sell truck from fatal accident

     

    Campbellsville Fire Chief Kyle Smith wants to sell the ladder truck that was involved with the electrocution accident from last summer.

    "Our department has been without a ladder truck for nearly one year, and it appears it will still be quite some time before that truck is repaired and returned," said Smith.

    The fire chief's proposal is to sell that ladder truck, which the city purchased in 2009, for about $400,000, and use that to purchase a pumper truck and finance a new ladder truck.

  • Cox Interior making its own energy

    Local wood manufacturer Cox Interior has used wood waste to help produce electricity - a process called bioenergy - for more than 20 years.

    Cox Interior, established in 1983, has used a biomass-fueled boiler/steam turbine, also called a CHP (combined heat and power system), to generate heat and electricity since 1994. The business started the Cox Waste-to-Energy program in 1992. Oct. 21 will be the third annual National Bioenergy Day, said Tim Hughes, director of the Division of Biofuels at the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet.

    The Campbellsville Police Department is looking for a “person of interest” in connection with a string of break-ins of unlocked cars in the area.

    CPD Sgt. Shannon Wilson said that in roughly the past two weeks, there have been at least five such incidents, wherein the person breaks in to an unlocked car and steals some of the contents.

    Wilson said he has gone to Taylor County Attorney John Bertram to get an arrest warrant.

  • Weather delays school construction

    The two Taylor County Schools construction projects are behind schedule, largely due to the weather.

    At Thursday night’s Taylor County Board of Education special-called meeting, Taylor County School Superintendent Roger Cook stated that construction at the new high school is about 70 days behind, while construction at the new elementary school is 55 or 60 days behind.

    “If we ever get dry weather, in August possibly, then it’ll go a lot faster, probably,” Cook said.
